Who we are

Habitas is a global hospitality group created by a diverse community of people seeking human connection, authentic experiences, and a better future together. Redefining the concept of traditional luxury in hotels, we believe luxury cannot be bought or sold, but it is a feeling that exists in the experiences and memories that we create with others. Our mission is to change people’s lives through creating deeper human connections and to make a lasting impact on local communities through education, employment, and the creation of sustainable micro-economies. With ‘HOMES’ currently located in Mexico, Costa Rica, Morocco, USA, Saudi Arabia, and Namibia, Habitas is expanding globally across LATAM, Africa, the Middle East, and Asia using its technology-driven approach and innovative vertically integrated model.
